Nicholas exceeded my expectations. Go talk to them, will not be disappointed.

Joseph S.

Very professional, caring and knowledgeable about Elder Care planning. Attorney Lutz worked with me and explained in detail how my elderly mother with dementia would qualify for her care in a nursing home. I would never have been able to do all the necessary work it took on my own for the completion of my mom’s long term care plan. I will always be grateful that attorney Lutz and his staff took my mom’s case. I’m very thankful to know she will be getting the care she deserves.

Carol M.

Very professional and knowledgeable, courteous and kind.

John L.
